Realty Commission Came Just right in Time!
I started trying this career last March 2008. My Ice Breaker was my husband. He invested a 1 bedroom unit at Berkeley Residences last May 2008. He’s my lucky charm coz the following day I closed another deal with a Filipino Engineer in Dubai, the same project – Berkeley. I am so happy that time that I could close a deal already! I thought I’ll never had a chance of closing a deal! Waiting from March to May is quite long for me. But they always said its okay for the first timer like me. They actually said it will take 6 months before I can finally get a sure client. Lucky me coz It’s only 3 months since I started and I had instant 2 clients already! The next month i closed 2 deals again!!! I thought I was really lucky then but next month – July, I don’t have any deal. The following month again – August, I luckily had a care giver client from USA and my first CASH Downpayment Buyer! This is my very first check I received! I am very happy coz i will be able to take my check after only 1 week of Client’s Payment. This is the first time I handled almost 40 thousand pesos money!!! That’s a lot for me!!! I never received money that big in 2 years working in an office or as a teacher!!! Thanks to my husband for convincing me into real estate instead of spenting 8 hours in an office and 3 hours for my back and forth trip.
But next to this month – September till now, so sad to be true, I never had a “close deal”. =( They said It’s because of the “recession”. MOst of my clients were OFW, there are lots of OFW’s who came home JOBLESS this past few months! Maybe that’s why I don’t have a buyer or atleast an inquiry! That means I don’t have an income from September up to now!!!!
But since our commision is based on payment terms, I received a 2 commissions this month from my sales last May! And I’m still waiting for the other 1 commision from the other Developer this month. Hopefully, it will take out soon! At least, I have a money to spent for christmas and I can able to give gifts/help to my “poor” brothers and sister (i can say they are poor coz they were jobless right now, how can they able to spent a happy christmas if they,esp. their kids don’t have anything to eat?! Sigh! tsk…tsk…tsk…). And now, eventhough I don’t have a close deal from september up to now, I’m still happy and positive that I can still have more SALES hopefully this coming NEW YEAR!!!
